To wait on God is to live a life of desire toward Him, delight in Him, dependence on Him, and devotedness to Him.
Matthew Henry (1662-1714)
There are no distinctions of affection in the divine family. We are all loved just as fully as Jesus is loved. It is like a fairy story — the reigning monarch adopts waifs and strays and makes princes of them. But, praise God, it is not a fairy story: it is hard and solid fact, founded on the bedrock of free and sovereign grace. . . . No wonder John cries, “Behold, what manner of love!”
J. I. Packer, Knowing God (Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 1993), 216.
Child of God, you cost Christ too much for him to forget you!
Charles Spurgeon (1834 – 1892)
There is nothing that makes us love a man so much as praying for him.
William Law (1686 – 1761)
Learn much of the Lord Jesus. For every look at yourself, take ten looks at Christ. He is altogether lovely. Such infinite majesty, and yet such meekness and grace, and all for sinners, even the chief! Live much in the smiles of God. Bask in his beams. Feel his all-seeing eye settled on you in love, and repose in his almighty arms. . . . Let your soul be filled with a heart-ravishing sense of the sweetness and excellency of Christ and all that is in Him. Let the Holy Spirit fill every chamber of your heart; and so there will be no room for folly, or the world, or Satan, or the flesh.
Robert Murray McCheyne (1813-1843)
